    You want him to throw more balls to reduce his pitch count. That seems counter productive no?

    You have to "give to get"......   Meaning, the strike zone gets bigger when you keep the batter off balance !!!

    Is this thread meant to be a self-interaction thread? I don't see anyone else interested.

      Thats because most of the posters are saying to themselves, "why didn't I think of that" !!!!!

    No brush back pitches are to keep hitters off the point not to expand the strike zone. You expand the strike zone by changing location. Come on Bill Lester threw 114 in 6.1 because he throw a lot of balls wasting a pitch so the hitter won't clawber the ball isn't going to help that.

    Lester has been throwing a lot of pitches lately, true. But the Sox haven't exactly been playing defense well behind him. 

    He had a miserable June, but he's been really good since July 3rd with a 3.65 ERA. His W/L record has as much to do with unearned runs and poor run support. 

    I do, always, think getting into the hitter's kitchen is a good idea. But I love old-school pitching.

    Ithink the real problem is that Lester has an issue with himself... Does that guy ever smile or does he even enjoy pitching? Watch this guy , He looks like he's mad at the world. He beat cancer ,has a great job, but never does he just relax and what happens ,happens.  He seems to me he's lost the fun of the game and he  lets it get the best of him. It's ok to want to do your best but not to a point where you lose control of what your doing. Heck, if he smiled ,it just might scare the batter.  Sometimes he sweats so  much it could fill a bucket.Relax dude, take a step back and enjoy.

    Now wait a minute here, Lester hit Lawrie with a pitch. Doesn't that count?
